That's really weird. I have a very similar compulsion but 100% reversed. I find it difficult - almost impossible - to not complete a book I have started reading. Even if I'm not enjoying it, even if I started as it was my only choice and now I have 8 better alternatives. Even if I never paid for it. For some reason, I simply find it very difficult.
I only have two playlists - the legendary 'Music for Sheep' that I lost and had to recreate so often on every flipping music platform/player I had to write a blog post about it.
The other is 'Sad Songs' - well it's actually 'Funeral Setlist' but I worried if people saw me playing that, they might worry I was about my state of mind and thin I was about to join the '27 Club'. With an Senior Citizen discount.
My last car, A Megane convertible, played songs in alphabetical order of title, and random never really worked, so I spent an afternoon making a playlist, and put them all in the order I wanted them. To find that the car radio read the playlist, then started playing it in alphabetical order by title.....
